2019 LB Tra Wilkins of Stone Mountain, GA is going to be one of the most sought after prospects in his state next year. His early offer list includes USC, Georgia, Ohio State, Alabama, Louisville, Auburn, Florida, Tennessee and others. It’s early in the process but the Gamecocks are in a good spot with him at this point.
“My relationship with the linebacker coach is pretty cool and I like that they are bringing their program around,” Wilkins said. “They just like the way I play the game, my speed and athleticism as an inside backer.”
Wilkins also said he’s been impressed with some of the recent recruiting classes at USC and sees a program with a talent level that’s improving.
“South Carolina has a lot of ballers and can be a top team in the SEC next year,” he said. “I already see it coming and that’s something I would like to be a part of in the next few years. I’m just waiting for my visit so I can see how I like it personally.”
Wilkins said he will visit USC once he gets a date scheduled with linebackers coach Coleman Hutzler. He’s looking at February but it could come earlier. And he said USC will be on his short list when he gets around to making one.
